Quote Historians have chronicled the rise of racism in the West.  Before the 1450's Europeans considered Africans exotic but not necessarily inferior.  As more and more nations joined the slave trade, Europeans came to characterize Africans as stupid, backward, and uncivilized.  Amnesia set in: Europe gradually found it convenient to forget that Moors from Africa had brought to Spain and Italy much of the learning that led to the Renaissance.  Europeans had known that Timbuctu, with its renowned university and library, was a center of learning.  Now, forgetting Timbuctu, Europe and European Americans perceived Africa as the "dark continent."  By the 1850's many white Americans, including some Northerners, claimed that black people were so hopelessly inferior that slavery was a proper form of education for them; it also removed them physically from the alleged barbarism of the "dark continent."

Quote The very essence of what we have inherited from slavery is the idea that it is appropriate, even "natural," for whites to be on top, Blacks on the bottom.  In its core our culture tells us--tells all of us, including African Americans--that Europe's domination of the world came about because Europeans were smarter.  In their core, many whites and some people of color believe this.  White supremacy is not only a residue of slavery, to be sure.  Developments in American history since slavery ended have maintained it.

Quote Although textbook authors no longer sugarcoat how slavery affected African Americans, they minimize white complicity in it.

Quote The emotion generated by textbook descriptions of slavery is sadness, not anger.  For there's no one to be angry at.  Somehow we ended up with four million slaves in America but no owners! This is part of a pattern in our textbooks: anything bad in American history happened anonymously.  Everyone named in our history made a positive contribution...Or as Frances FitzGerald put it when she analyzed textbooks in 1979, "In all history, there is no known case of anyone's creating a problem for anyone else."

Quote In 1829, three years after Jefferson's death, David Walker, a black Bostonian, warned members of his race that they should remember Jefferson as their greatest enemy.  "Mr. Jefferson's remarks respecting us have sunk deep into the hearts of millions of whites, and never will be removed this side of eternity."  For the next hundred years, the open white supremacy of the Democratic Party, Jefferson's political legacy to the nation, would bear out the truth of Walker's warning.
